Petrescu rules out move for Inter defender
Without giving too much away the former Romanian international suggested that his side were well stocked with defensive options therefore a move for the 32-year-old would not be suitable for the Russian club.
“Chivu is definitely a great player and also a friend to me,” Petrescu told FCInterNews.
“But it will not come because it is not suitable for us and we are looking for players in other departments.”
With Walter Mazzarri arriving over the summer to coach the Nerazzurri this season it remains to be seen whether the former Roma man will play a significant part as he looks to ensure that the Milan based club are challenging for the Scudetto once more.
During a difficult campaign for the Romanian last season he managed just 10 Serie A appearances scoring once.
